DHR X30 Instant Success!

DHR X30 Instant Success!

Marsh immediately to the forefront!

DHR the UK Alonso kart distributor made its Iame X30 debut at the PF Winter Series round 1 last weekend with instant success. DHRís Rotax British Super 1 champion Sam Marsh tested the Iame X30 package for the first time at the event and immediately found the X30 engine and tyre combination to his liking. Powered once more by Ogden engines DHR and Marsh wasted no time to show their intentions and qualified P2 overall out of some 64 drivers missing out by just 2 hundredths, but having set 3 fast laps all the same, they knew the race pace was good. Indeed it was and in the dry pre final Marsh just missed out on victory finishing a very close 2nd. The rain finally fell and led to a wet tyre final on a drying track. Having not tested on the X30 Komet wet tyres before Marsh was unsure of the grip levels in the early laps, once he settled in to a good rhythm mid race he was able to bring home the DHR Alonso kart in an outstanding 2nd place.

Meanwhile Luke Ide in Junior Rotax has been in excellent form and took a very strong 2nd place at Whilton Mill club race a couple of weeks back missing out on the win by a matter of inches setting fastest lap along the way. He backed this up with an outstanding drive in the wet conditions at PF with another 2nd place spot again just missing victory against a top quality grid of drivers.

DHR would like to thank Ogden engines for the excellent equipment and assistance with the X30 package. DHR are inviting both Junior and Senior drivers to come and test the Iame X30 with them with opportunities in the team for drives in LGM, Super 1 and for those interested international races along with all the usual club races. X30 interest has already been intense and the team have limited spaces available for next season. So if you want to race with a successful leading team with a professional image and approach and winners of 3 Super 1 championships in the last 4 years then please get in touch as youíll be pleasantly surprised by our packages available.

Interntaional Open Champions with Wooder!

Interntaional Open Champions with Wooder!

The Rotax International Open contested at the famous Spanish circuit of Zuera has become the European seasonís last major race. With a quality international field of drivers attracted by last chance Rotax World final tickets the race carries big prizes for the winners.

With some strong driver additions to the team in Junior Rotax it was DHRís Estonian driver Ralf Aron who led most of the grand final. With the usual last couple of frantic laps it was DHR regular Dave Wooder who crossed the line victorious. Wooder who was fastest throughout made his move at the perfect moment to claim victory. Aron was out dragged to the line and just missed out on a much deserved podium on his team debut. DHRís other new recruit Lars Lamborelle of the Netherlands also featured in the top few places but fell to 7th at the flag after some minor electrical issues.

In Senior Rotax DHRís latest signing former KF2 British and European champion Jordan Chamberlain was looking good having led and controlled the pre final from mid distance to the last lap until a last corner manoeuvre took him out of contention. Although the offending driver was penalised for the over ambitious manoeuvre it didnít change the result.

So Wooder takes his much deserved World Finals ticket, with Aron and Lamborelle already qualified also joined by Pasqual Pook of the UAE and Julian Van Der Watt of South Africa. In senior the team have Pierce Lehane of Australia, Philip Morin of Sweden and South African Nathan Parkins. DHRís DD2 efforts are represented by the British duo of Sean Babington and Barrie Pullinger which complete the strong line-up for the Rotax Grand finals in New Orleans next weekend.

DHR Wooders dominate PF Club race

DHR Wooders dominate PF Club race

Dave Wooder was able to keep out of trouble during the PF club race in October and showed his development by taking a lights to flag victory in the final amongst a classy field of drivers.
Younger brother Luke Wooder also showed his progress with a great showing just missing out on victory on the final lap but still taking an excellent 2nd position!
The team now move onto the final big race of the year which is the Rotax International open at Zuera in Spain. With world final tickets up for grabs the race will be hotly contested.

British Super 1 Champions!!!

British Super 1 Champions!!!

DHR retained the Senior Rotax British championship with driver Sean Babington becoming the first driver to retain this Super 1 series title. Babington drove a cleaver meeting all weekend and was on pole for the pre final, after finishing a strong and safe 4th Babington once more led the main final until settling for 3rd position as the leading trio pulled clear of the rest of the field. Babington was able to celebrate crossing the line knowing he was British Champion again!
In junior max Dave Wooder and Phillip Rawson once again showed the top speed but both drivers continued their story of the year by getting involved in incidents in both finals. Rawson ends the series in 10th spot with Wooder just outside the top 10. Wooder who continues with the team in 2014 will for sure be aiming high as he grows and learns from this tough 1st season in Juniors.
In mini max Luke Wooder commanded the meeting, qualifying pole in timed practice by over 2ths he then led heat 1 until the last lap last corner he was taken out and not being able to finish. He made up for this with victory in heat 2. Wooder made progress in the final 1 to take 4th at the flag and put himself in contention for the final 2. However whilst leading the main final he was shuffled back and then hit wide from behind and was only able to recover to 10th place. Wooder seems to have ended his year on a high at least despite not achieving the win his driving and pace deserved. Wooder managed to earn 10th place in the championship and takes that plate into the 2014 season.

Euro Max Vice Champions in DD2 & Podium in Senior Rotax

Euro Max Vice Champions in DD2 & Podium in Senior Rotax

Reigning European champions DHR went into the final round in contention for the Senior Rotax and DD2 titles. The Salbris host of the 4th and final round didn't go 100% the way of DHR but the team and drivers tried their best.
In DD2 Pullinger fresh off his win at the BNL final round continued his fine form and stormed to pole position for the pre final after very strong heats. Pullinger despite running 2nd for most of the pre final slipped back on the final couple of laps still claiming 5th. In the main final after a difficult start Pullinger was unable to make the head way his speed deserved and instead pushed round following teammate Babington home in 4th and 5th place.
Babington had injuries to overcome and was doubtful even to race after qualifying he returned to get a special rib protector made from the UK. Despite still struggling with pain he continued and produced a great 2nd place in the pre final. However the final was not to be as planned. After a good start Babington ran 2nd place which would have been enough to take the title, until his seat supports broke from the chassis caused by the big curbs at the French Salbris circuit. Babington dropped to 4th position by the flag but lost the title by just 1 point!
The team are proud of their drivers for their 1st season in the DD2 class they finished 2nd and 6th in the championship overall and look to go even better in 2014.
In Senior Rotax Pierce Lehane showed his speed once more with a good qualifying 2nd place. After strong heats the duo of Morin and Lehane ran 3rd and 4th in the pre final until Lehane was cruelly taken off by a competitor who later got excluded for his actions. Morin went onto finish 2nd in the pre final still keeping his title hopes alive.
The main final was difficult start for Morin and the leaders raced away, Morin was left to battle over the final podium step also knowing a good finish would secure him the 3rd place in the series. So without too much risk Morin finished 4th and was rewarded with standing on the podium for the championship presentation. The best result by a Swedish driver in the Euro Series in such a competitive category Morin can be proud.

BNL Snr Max Champions and DD2 Vice Champions!!!

BNL Snr Max Champions and DD2 Vice Champions!!!

DHR achieve BNL Champions in Senior Rotax and Vice Champions in DD2! Philip Morin completed an excellent round 3 of the BNL series to take overall victory in the BNL series in the hotly contest Senior Rotax class. Morin beat his nearest rival both days to further extended his championship standing and take a much deserved international title. With this title comes the big price of the World Finals Ticket invite which is held at the Nola track in new Orleans USA mid November.
In DD2 Barrie Pullinger was aiming high but going into the final round in 4th place in the standings his chances of victory or even 2nd position were slim. Yet Pullinger and the team delivered when they had to and a string of 2nd place finishes capped off with a fine victory in the last final of the weekend left Pullinger with enough points to claim the runners up spot and he was the new vice champion. Pullinger also claimed his World Finals invite which is his first time at the prestigious event.
A great effort by the drivers and the team can be proud with just 2 drivers both achieving high results at this very competitive series.

Babington just misses out on GP title

Babington just misses out on GP title

DHR senior rotax driver Sean Babington is a previous winner of the GP title back in 2010 in junior Rotax he won the prestigious plate with DHR. However since then a string of 2nd places seems to be the trend. Despite being clearly the fastest around the fantastic PF circuit Babington was unable to take the victory. Twice he recovered from incidents in the final to take the lead but was not able to recover a 3rd time with laps running out he closed on the leader needing just 1 more lap to mount a final challenge.
In Junior Max Philip Rawson qualified pole and took 2 heat wins. Yet he was unable to manage his tyres as well as others and come the grand final he had no grip left from the Mojo tyres. He did a great effort to still claim 4th place just missing out on the podium places. Dave Wooder has been fast also but got involved in incidents and finished well down the order in the grand final.
In Mini max Luke Wooder had great speed yet he was also unable to deliver the result his pace deserved also caught yup in track accidents not through his own fault.
The team now concentrate their efforts on the final round of the BNL championship where Philip Morin and Barrie Pullinger have chances to claim top positions in Snr Max and DD2 respectively.

Larkhall Super 1- Good points earned

Larkhall Super 1- Good points earned

A big crash at the start of the senior rotax final 1 shook up the field and removed DHR drivers Babington and Morin from their front starting positions. Neither really recovered, however in final 2 Babington was able to climb up the order despite another 1st lap incident he made progress and after penalties for other drivers were issued was classified in 3rd position. Morin again was involved in accidents and eventually retired.
In junior max Dave Wooder had a strong meeting and ran 3rd in the main final with 2 laps to go he made a small error and dropped to 6th. Gary Donnelly made his best race and ended with a fine 9th place finish showing his imporvemnt over the season so far. rawson was excluded in final 1 from 8th place so did well to climb to 10th in final 2.
In mini max conditions were tough for the finals with a wet and damp circuit. Unfortunately an incident packed race led to both Zak Fulk and Luke Wooder crashing out of contention for the top positions. They and the team look ahead to the British Kart Masters at PFI.

DD2 1-2 at PF Euro MAX!!!

DD2 1-2 at PF Euro MAX!!!

Some would say the DHR team dominated the PFI round 3 of Euro Max. In Senior Rotax team drivers Philip Morin and Pierce Lehane qualified 1-2 in timed practice. After strong heats all DHR drivers were racing at the front of the main final. Morin who led many laps in the final was pushed wide by a competitor and lost ground, he eventually finished 4th. Connor Jupp who was finished last in the pre final had an amazing drive through the field to take a podium place in the main final! Pierce Lehane battled hard and recovered to 6th at the flag.
In Junior Max drivers Philip rawson and Dave Wooder were on top form. both The pair qualified 3rd and 5th overall and then after strong heats lined up 2nd and 4th. After a frantic pre final Rawson claimed the win with Wooder coming home in 4th. The main final was even more action packed and Rawson once again come out ontop to take his first Euro max victory! A fine drive, Wooder did lead onto the final lap but incidents forced him down the order eventually crossing the line 5th. However both drivers were called by the stewards and both received penalties which resulted in the victory being given to the next finisher. A huge disappointment but still Rawson crossed the line 1st.
The DD2 boys of Sean Babington and Barrie Pullinger had shown strong pace. Babington had been struggling with his brakes during the heats. During an eventful pre final both drivers led at some point but both drivers found themselves on the grass on different occasions due to some contact driving from competitors. Pullinger did claim 4th with Babington recovering to 7th. They saved the best to the main final, race engines on the duo stormed though the first few laps and soon found themselves in 1st and 2nd position with Babington heading Pullinger. Babington stretched his legs and took victory by over 6 seconds as Pullinger produced his best Euro Max result with a stunning 2nd place finish. The DD2 field considered the strongest and most competitive on the grid the drivers can be proud of their results.

Babington runner up at GYG S1

GYG super 1 was to be a mixed meeting for the DHR team. Sean Babington got his Super 1 campaign back on track with a fine 2nd place in the main final. Victory on this occasion not possible due to the heavy defending from the race leader and the nature of the tight circuit. Philip Morin had featured at the front but a last lap incident left him in 10th. New recruit Jordan Irvine produced his best result with a solid 8th place.
In Jnr Philip Rawson continued his usual slow start with a super strong ending to the meeting. Climbing through the field to get 5th place finish. Dave Wooder had a 1st lap incident but also salvaged 11th by the flag for some decent points.

Castelleto Euro Max strong for DHR

Castelleto Euro Max strong for DHR

The DHR drivers qualfied extremely well among some 80 drivers in the senior rotax category at Castelletto Italy for the 2nd round of Euro Max. Topping group 1 of qualfying was Jack Weprin, Philip Morin was second in group 2 and Pierce Lehane topped group 3 with teamate Eugene Dennysen 3rd also. Overall this put the drivers 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 8th out of 80!
Heats were wet and Philip Morin rose best to the occasion claiming all heat wins and secruing pole postion for the pre final. Lehane did well also and was grided 9th with Denneysen and Weinzierl and Jupp all making the final. The battle at vthe front was aggresive and Morin led most laps but was pipped at the end and come home in 4th. Lehane looked fastest on track but a series of nearly crashes meant he could only get 6th. In the main final both drivers raced well but the battling from other competitors broke up the leading pack and depsite being faster than the winner Morin and Lehane settled for 6th and 7th. Morin now moves into 3rd in the championship.
In Junior Max Wooder had good heats depsite a crash in heat 1 he recovered well to 10th and backed this up with a 4th and 2nd in the other wet heats. For the dry pre final Wooders race was almost over by the first corner when he was driven over from behind. After re starting he battkled through setting a faster time than the race winner! The main final didnt even allow him to get past the first turn with a ultiple kart pile up Wooder was at the bottom of 5 karts and with terminal damage his weekend was over.
In DD2 Babington qualified 3rd and after strong heats lined up 3rd on the grid for the pre final. After a race long battle he finished 5th. In the main final he was unable to better his re final performnace just lacking 1th each lap to challenge for the podium. He hopes for better next time out. Barrie Pullinger endured a tough weekends racing after being very fast in the testing Pullinger lost pace in qualfying which seemed to be down to a bad set of tyres. The pre final also was diffcult for Barrie but when he was abl to put new tyres on for the main final his pace improved and he climbed up to 13th. Pullinger is now 9th in the series with Babington 4th.

Super 1 Rowrah Mixed for DHR

Super 1 Rowrah Mixed for DHR

Rowrah Super 1 was a very mixed meeting for DHR similar to the cumbrian weather yet again!
In Senior Rotax Babington was unfortunately on the wrong end of some first corner crashes and failed to make inroads in both finals. Connor Jupp however impressed again after winning the repercharge he then went onto drive thoguh to 9th in final 1 and then to 4th in finao 2 challenging for the win at one point.
A cracked chassis seemed to cause him to settle for the point on this occasion. Jordan Irvine also qualfied via the repercharge and made decent progress in both finals despite many first conrer incidents.
In Junior Rotax Dave Wooder had set the fastest dry time in the heats of anybody and whilst running in the leading pack of Final 2 he was simply in the wrond place at the wrong time and was taken out in someone else crash. Philip Rawson drive well to take a good 5th place and more points for the championship. If Rawson gets a good qualfying in at the next round he is sure to be challenging for podiums.
In Mini Max Luke Wooder had his series best result with a 7th in Final 2, yet Zak Fulk had looked like he could have gone even better after an excellent drive in Final 1 his kart failed him on the formation lap of Fianl 2, a broken starter switch the cause on this occaision.

EuroMax Genk Hi's and Low's

EuroMax Genk Hi's and Low's

The first round of the EuroMax challenge at Genk was to be a week of highs and lows unfortunatley for the DHR team ending on the latter. With an impressive timed qualfying performance the team displayed what its talented driver line up grouped together with its now renound fast and well setup equipment could actually do. New DHR member Connor Jupp picked up where the team left off in 2012 securing pole position for the Senior Rotax qualfying out of some 90 drivers. Philip Morin also went well and secured 3rd place with Austrian driver Weinzierl, Australian Lehane and American Weprin all not too far behind.
Despite good heats with many wins the finals were not too be as good, with first corner crash's losing Morin and Lehane from the front it was left with Jupp to fight for the win. After a race long battle Jupp took the lead with 4 laps to go but didnt defend when neccessary at the next corner and was shifted back down the leading train, and on the next lap he was out all together when trying to avoid a spinning kart.
In the Junior Max category Dave Wooder did a good job all weekend and secured a 4th in final 1 and recovered to 7th in final 2 following a first corner crash.
In DD2 Babington also qualfied pole with teammate Pullinger grid 7. For the finals Babington's pace wasnt quite enough to claim victory and he played it safe and settled for 3rd giving a solid podium place! Pullinger recovered after a diffcult start to 7th in final 2.
The team now look forward to the second round of the Euro max at Casteletto Italy where the team hopes to turn its speed into results.

World Finals Disappointment

World Finals Disappointment

The Rotax Grand Finals was the season finale for the DHR team. Unfortunately it did not prove to be as successful as the rest of the 2012 season! Sean Babington endured power issues all week, a problem the team and Rotax organisers were unable to overcome.

Pierce Lehane had been in emphatic form qualifying pole position and winning all of his 3 heats all looked good for the finals. Whilst leading the main final Pierce received contact from another competitor causing him to run off line and leaving Pierce to manage a bent kart home. He salvaged a fine 5th but this was a small consolation as the result could have been special.

Snr Max driver Philip Morin had been fast all week, but whilst running 5th in the pre final he encountered an electrical problem causing him to retire back to the pits. The ignition coil was at fault and was replaced for the final but he was unable to recover to the front of the field depsite a fine drive.

Raoul Hyman qualified 4th in the Jnr max class. Whilst his driving was on top form his engine wasn't and lacked top end speed. With Raoul battling inside the top 10 in the main final the engine began to lose power and revs and this led to Raoul losing places and ending in a disappointing 17th.

Thomas Randle of Australia also in Jnr Max had showed speed all week and with although had strong races in some heats was unlucky with some incidents and found himself in the repercharge. Whilst in a qualifying position for the main final he was taken out on the 2nd lap ending his hopes for the week!

So overall a tough week but with many positives and the success of 2012 to fall back on the DHR team look forward to hopefully another successful year in 2013.
